Dr. Christine Slobogin

I am an art historian working within the medical humanities. My research has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, Yale University’s Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and Durham University’s Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research. My PhD at Birkbeck, University of London focused on Dickie Orpen’s surgical drawings and the visual culture of plastic surgery in Second World War Britain; the monograph output of this project is in preparation. I am currently a Visiting Early Career Fellow at the John Rylands Research Institute at the University of Manchester, developing a project on anonymity in medical imagery. My research on historical empathy and plastic surgery photographs and drawings has been published in Medical Humanities and I have a chapter forthcoming in an edited volume on British humor during the Second World War. I am also Co-Convenor of the Early Career Researchers Network at the Paul Mellon Centre, ECR Development Lead and Network Coordinator for the Institute of Medical Humanities at Durham University, and a freelance curator for the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons.
